Comments: Day 1 of 3, 10 miles. Cascades running full and pretty. Spur to Middle Brother should not be missed and same goes for Table Rock (we saw two day hikers down below). Kelsey Notch a four-wheeler cautioned us that this was a busy road and we told him we weren't were going to be on it for long turning off into the woods. We had filled all our water bottles at the bridge on Kelsey Notch Road on the NW side of the bridge there is a slight nice herd path to the water. I had hiked to Baldhead this way once and did not recall any water between here and the shelter and I was right. There was some a dog might drink but we were happy not to do it. Nice walk in the woods and trail was wet but clear and we enjoyed the forest and ferns. We had the shelter to ourselves for the night happily. There is maybe one place behind the privy where a tent could be set up but the ground was wet. Privy is nice. I was sad to see that the view has grown-in, a major chainsaw-fest will be required to open it again and please do. We learned next morning that a good ten minute walk south of the shelter there was a stream.
